Unsure as to whether or not we've been residing (temporarily) on another planet, but forgive us for being unaware of the fact that high street chain French Connection ventured into the world of interiors during Spring 2012.

Whilst feeding through Elle Decorations July issue *all be it a few weeks late* only to glimpse at one of those annoying pamphlets that seem to be ingeniously stuffed within the centre spread, you know the handfull of A5s that will inevitably end underneath ones sofa? YES. Not a favourable marketing strategy of ours.

It was on the above that made a google search become such a priority. Only to discover, what the mind had initially conjured was indeed reality. More often than not, when a fashion retailer branches out towards a different industry (no matter how relative) it doesn't necessarily mean success. However, this really isn't the case here. From lighting, to occasional furniture and a seasonal inspired collection of home accencts, the guys over at French Connection seem to know what they're doing.

Providing you're a fan of the heavily coveted 'reclaimed' look, we think you'll love.

It has been almost a year since Heidi Silmane stepped forward and took reign as creative director of Yves Saint Laurent.

Rebranding and criticism from press aside, Silmane has undoubtedly proven that change is good. Having officially opened the doors of the fashion houses flagship store located on Avenue Montaigne (Paris), 'the Prince of Darkness' proves that his passion to develop the brands aesthetics covers more than the simplistic cut of this seasons cigarette pant.
The flagship store extrudes modern Parisian opulence. Marble finishes and nickel-plated brass create a dramatic monochromatic theme. Very much the resemblance of Silamnes influential impact within the indistry.

Our fingers are crossed that Londons Sloane Street store (which is due to re-open late autumn) will follow suit*
